Ravello Travel Guide

by our Italy expert Paul Baderman
 
Paul BadermanOn the spectacular Amalfi coast, many would claim the medieval hill town of Ravello as providing the most beautiful view of the Mediterranean anywhere. And since the ‘many’ includes an immense list of artists, writers and musicians who lived and worked there, who are we to argue? Boccaccio (of ‘Decameron’ fame), Virginia Woolf, EM Forster all wrote about it; Wagner is still honoured by a music festival, MC Escher drew townscapes. Originally a maritime republic, like Venice, it too was ruled by a Doge. Its solidly attractive cathedral dates from 1087 and stands in contrast to the Moorish influences in other architecture. Nearby Naples prompts local food tastes – but Ravello is really where you feast your eyes.
